Young Res­i­dents com­mit­tee seek­ing more mem­bers

The Weekly Vista - - News -

The new­est Joint Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee could use a few more mem­bers, chair­man An­drew Grover of the Young Res­i­dents Com­mit­tee said.

“We would wel­come any­one who wants to help,” he said. They meet on Thurs­day at the same time as the Board of Direc­tors meet­ing, but ex­pect to change to the first Thurs­day of each month to avoid the con­flict.

While most of the other JAC’s meet at the Coun­try Club, the Young Res­i­dents have de­cided to meet in the evening and Rior­dan Hall is al­ways open for them. Since the restau­rant closed there are some evenings when the Coun­try Club isn’t open, Grover said.

They spent part of their last meet­ing hear­ing about the Com­mu­nity Gar­den near Mercy Med­i­cal Cen­ter from Judy Grif­fin who is a mem­ber of the Recre­ation Com­mit­tee. Both com­mit­tees share an in­ter­est in the project, Grover ex­plained. He’s happy to let Grif­fin and the Rec Com­mit­tee take the lead.

He listed a few ideas for a com­mu­nity ac­tiv­ity: A food or cloth­ing drive, a mid­night swim or a an ac­tiv­ity at Blow­ing Springs park.

They agreed they like the idea of the swim beach at Avalon but, Grover said, some mem­bers are dis­ap­pointed that a fee will be charged to use the swim beach.

The com­mit­tee also be­lieves that up-to-date play­grounds are a pri­or­ity for Bella Vista.
